Abstract: Chapter 6 of Library Technology Reports (vol. 56, no. 5), “Digital Legacy,” focuses on cybersecurity and digital legacy. We as digital citizens go to great lengths to keep our information secure and safe. Librarians and educators train students and patrons in ways to keep information secure in a digital society. But what happens to that information when you are no longer a citizen in the digital environment? What happens when your loved ones need access to your digital information, files, and more? This chapter focuses on methods for building a safe and secure digital legacy for your friends, family, and yourself throughout your life and after.
